    Phew...where to start answering that question?

    First then...have you built a sub before? Have you built a surface boat before?

    I have some T Class plans you can download here

    You may also want to consider exactly which boat you want to model. The Darnell is basically a type III.

    Some have bandstands with AA guns, some don't. Some have 4" guns, some have been made 'slippery Ts' You have LOTS of choices - pick one! The slippery Ts will probably be the easier as they have all their decks cleared.

    There is an article on this here

    I also have a TON of photos - somewhere.
